A perfect terrace for a gin & tonic (and lots of ice)

Though it was hot and humid, I enjoyed having drinks with friends on the terrace. The service was quick. The snacks welcomed. The view on the beach promenade fantastic !

I had both South and North Indian dishes, and enjoyed everything. Nice friendly service. They even made some mango juice for me that was not on the menu.

Order: Snapper, papaya salad. Thumbs up: Food (esp. Sea food), Promenade view from rooftop and service. Thumbs down: Avg. Veg food. Tip: Go for after drink at risk. Also, this is now called Bay of Buddha

I am very fond of the Hotel, Its staff is overwhelmingly nice, a very able Manager, very pleasing hotel. The Restaurant is good in all aspects. Tough its gets a little humid late into the night but all gets overlooked by the experience. Strongly Recommended. Dinner Buffet is awesome. All options. Very aptly priced.,
